SpiceJet today said it has launched daily flight services on Guwahati-Dibrugarh route, making it the 50th destination for the no-frills airline. "With the new flights SpiceJet will now operate a total of 26 flights in and out of North East and a total of eight flights within the region," the airline said in a release. The direct flight from Guwahati to Dibrugarh would be operated daily with 78-seater Bombardier Q400 aircraft. Now, SpiceJet flies to 50 destinations, including 43 domestic and 7 international places, according to the release. "We thank SpiceJet and especially Ajay Singh for accepting our request and inducting Dibrugarh onto SpiceJet's network with such priority.
This means a fresh impetus to trade, tourism and connectivity between northeastern states and adjoining regions," Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal was quoted as saying in the release. Ajay Singh is the Chairperson and Managing Director (CMD) of the airline. SpiceJet's Chief Marketing Officer Debojo Maharshi said the north eastern region has a distinctive connectivity constraint on account of its difficult terrain and hence SpiceJet has always remained committed to enhancing connectivity to this region. The budget airline operates an average of 384 daily flights, with a fleet of 35 Boeing 737NG and 20 Bombardier Q- 400 planes.
